Warner Brothers and author J.K. Rowling announce a new series of movies, the first based on a Hogwarts textbook, "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them." CNN's Mark Istook reports.
While it's Rowling's first screenplay for the movie company, she teases fans in a statement saying, "The book is neither a prequel nor a sequel to the series, but an extension of the wizarding world."
She says the film is to be set in New York, 70 years before Harry Potter.

@martina – Anything is demonic to those weak in their faith.
@J.K. Rowling – Shut up and take my money.
Yeah, thank you J.K Rowling
Only stupid people comment on CNN .... oh ... wait .....
She's a one trick pony, one trick is all that horse can do....
So? It's obviously a lucrative trick... I wish I knew a $billion trick or two.
Maybe, but she's laughing all the way to the bank!!!
Tell that to her two adult fiction novels that topped the bestsellers list at the same time. I guess if being an incredibly successful literary fiction, mystery, and children's fiction writer makes her a one trick pony, then yeah she definitely is one.
did you not read The Cuckoo's Calling? it was good as well.
One trick pony? She has earned over a billion dollars by writing 7 books about a kid. Damn good trick.
Oh God. No more white wizards. Jesus Christ.
Must read novel : Saving Bill Murray by Joshua Lorenzo Newett
I take a pass.. thank you.
How are her books demonic? Is it because there is a constant struggle of Light and Dark, Good and Evil? Or perhaps that they are filled with magic? Didn't Lord of the Rings series and The Lion, The Witch, And The Wardrobe series have all of these elements in them? But they were written by good christian people, so that makes them okay, right??
You people have no imagination! Lighten up! It's all good fun.
Sounds good. I'm looking forward to seeing this on the big screen!
Not interested in her or her demonic books!!!
@martina – the devil is coming for you
.... Have you considered Prozac?
Her demonic books are not interested in you either. Books are for the intelligent...
Books are for the intelligent? Twilight....need I say more haha
sorry had to say it, although I agree with what you're trying to defend 🙂
Get a life
Martina, seems like you have been brainwashed to believe there is a God.
@ggallin Shut up!!! (I was writing something smarter but really just thought you just deserved a good old fashion shut your pie hole)
Is that why you read this article about her? Because you're not interested in her? If you're not interested in someone, don't spend time reading things about them. That way, your words match your behavior. A beautiful concept isn't it? I think so too.
You must be somewhat interested since you read the article.
Let me guess, Hogwarts is renamed to Snorglesnocks and Professor Dimbledorts loses the Stone of Random and hides it in Tizzletwarts lair, wherein lies the dragon Dragelsnitz.
I should write my own children's book. Give them super powers, especially the ability to fly away from their evil parents (or anyone else they don't like) and use words that a 1 year old British kid would use to name all of the places and important characters.
Tolkien is surely rolling in his grave..
When spewing inside info, like you apparently have, PLEASE type in bold large lettering: SPOILER ALERT. So I will avoid reading it. Tolkien? is that another Character JK created? Wow! that's awesome...she has done so much.
please tell me your being sarcastic...
Please go write your own children's book. Seeing that you have a lot of time hating someone for apparently no personal reason at all. 🙂
If it's so easy why aren't you making millions writing books, hmm?
Can you say $$$$$$$?
Thank you JK!
